CommieTommie Harkin is blowing smoke about Fast and Furious.
Harkin calls Fast and Furious document questions “just pure politics”
If it was just "pure politics" the Ragister wouldn't be calling for Holder and the White House is to give Congress what it wants.
The Ragister continues -- the underlying issues that led to Wednesday’s contempt vote are no small matter.
Harkin also tries to cloud the issue (and the scientific community is united in that fact) by saying, given the fact this was initiated, really, under the Bush administration and continued under Obama.
"Operation Wide Receiver," the Bush-era operation was run out of Tucson between 2006 and 2007, ending before Bush left office and before Fast and Furious began under Obama in 2009. The differences between it and Fast and Furious are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies.
Operation Wide Receiver used the common law enforcement tactic of "controlled delivery" in which the illegal sales of weapons were allowed to take place, the movements of the weapons were closely monitored and the end purchasers were then apprehended. It involved gun-tracing, not gun-walking.
Most importantly, Wide Receiver was run in close cooperation with Mexican authorities, who were kept in the dark on Fast and Furious.
Pure Politics is what Harkin and his Dummycrat friends play and why they're held in contempt by thinking people everywhere.
